We went skiing today at Snowbird, in Little Cottonwood Canyon. As we were driving down I-80, we commented that it may be nice to just hop on a train at PCMR and ride it over to Snowbird. Our friend said, “you mean drive through traffic into town, go to PCMR, find the parking lot full, then park in a satellite lot somewhere, find a bus stop, wait 20 minutes for the bus, drag all our gear on it, get off, drag all our gear from the bus stop to the train, and ride for 30 minutes … and then do it all in reverse on the way back? Sure.”
The idea sounded kind of romantic until reality was pointed out.
